Most children are fine, even those that received some back blows, mouth to mouth or some semblance of bystander rescue maneuvers.

Those that are having difficulty breathing or other symptoms should receive appropriate respiratory support and be followed closely clinically and with chest x-rays when the situation changes. All symptomatic children should be admitted to the hospital.
